the education of our u.s. olympic team. >>> the u.n. security council voted to extend its mission in syria about another 30 days. and suspected colorado theater shooter james holmes is scheduled to make his first court appearance on monday. dave cullen, author of the remarkable book, "columbine" and jill nelson. i want to start with the shooting in aurora, colorado that killed a dozen people and injured 58 others. police went door to door last night informing victim's families. the aurora police say 24-year-old james holmes wore a bullet proof vest and attacked movie goers at a sold out midnight screening. police say all four guns were purchased legally around with 6,000 rounds of ammunition. the assault rifle he used would have been illegal under the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. at least three members of the u.s. armed forces were wounded in the shooting. among the few things we know about james holmes are these. police say he is not cooperating with investigators besides telling them his apartment was booby trapped. he was in the process of a phd. we know nothing of his mendel sta

are trying to get to the bottom of that and taking little scraps that tell us nothing. a year or two years from now we are going to have a really complete picture of this guy. we are going to know exactly what he is like. even when they are dead there is a lot of stuff that will come out. we will have this picture. right now we are getting dots like this, tiny specks. and we are having the urge to put them together and draw a picture from them. you have dots here and here. the picture we come up with is probably wrong. three scraps of data out of 100,000 that is not going to work. >> and to me that gets to the kind of second conversation which is about politics. again, this is now part of the ritual which is so bizarre is that the second order conversation is about policy responses because mass shootings have happened with guns. and we have a country that has way more guns that other democracies for a bunch of other reasons which we can get into. when you are thinking about that, part of that in wrestling to get to why did this happen is one vision of this as essentially a natural disaster

of all of us. that's the power of all of us. that's the membership effect of american express. >>> good morning from new york, i'm chris hayes. president obama is going to aurora, colorado, today to visit with the victims of friday's theater shootings, their families and local officials. both president obama and mitt romney will return to the trail on monday with stops across the west coast. but i want to start with my story of the week. the taxes of the father. by week's end, it was getting harder and harder to find anyone democratic republican, pundit or operative who didn't think mitt romney should and ultimately would have to release more than two years of his tax returns. senate democrats are planning to introduce legislation this week raising dividends to 20% and now talking about letting all the bush tax cuts expire as part of a strategy to limit actual tax increases to people with annual incomes above $250,000. people like, well, mitt romney. and it also doesn't help that when george romney ran for president in 1968, he set a new precedent by turning over 12 years of tax returns

this -- >> i want to restore to america the principals that made us the hope of the earth. >> he's not talking about the principle, one that has been preserved under barack obama and mitt romney has no interest in going back. this is the real reason that mitt romney doesn't want to do what his father did by releasing more returns. a society where the wealthy are bound to everyone else. his own taxes, from what we've seen are a snapshot of what they look like in which the wealthy have used their influence over the political parties and the party making apparatus to write rules to allow them to keep the government's hands off their cash. a world in which they've created a rapidly growing industry of tax lawyers and accountants who make a lot of money boring through the tax code like termites. it's not a character story. elites are subject to the norms of their time. this is about the relationship of our elites to the rest of their fellow citizens and the ways it has changed over the last half century. what a society looks like when it's incapable of forcing the most powerful members to play by t

contributions meaningfully count but be shutout of the process." the u.s. supreme court rejected montana's claim that their history gave the state "unique and compelling interests in eliminating corporate influence on elections." justice briar wrote, "that nment expenditures do not corrupt or appear to do so." not only will the court not reconsider, the citizens united ruling, but not abide states acting independently to prevent their state electoral processes to unlimited contributions from corporate donors." i just want to get your reaction to the court's actions here? >> it's bad, really bad. what essentially happens is when we had too much money in politics already, we made it constitutionally protected to have unlimited amounts of money. so, any corporation, which they haven't really been doing it that much, but these loopy billionaires out there and some self-conscious billionaire as who have been able to write the big, fat checks in these campaigns, just sometimes for willful reasons, but a lot of times for investment reasons. >> i think the first wave we're getting the accentric ones. ri

for everybody in the west. if this doesn't tell us that now is the time for the debate, i guess nothing will. >> weather is terrifying and incomprehensible. even today with all of our progress and technology and all the things on the earth we can bend to our industrial will a single storm can knock out power for more than 3 million people, as it did last week in d.c. and the surrounding states. the last century of modern life snuffed out in an instant. storms and wildfires come and go and summer heat waves come and go and our atmosphere does all kind of freaky things. but if you take a step back and survey the wreckage of the bizarre, extreme weather just this year, nearly impossible to avoid the conclusion that the planet is screaming out an obvious message. climate change is here, the wolf is at the door. hit 95 in new york city and 105 in washington, d.c. 107 degrees, 107 degrees in st. louis. at least 60 people have died due to this heat wave and this year alone we had a staggering record highs. look at this map. these are the places that reported record monthly highs in march and these

was driving through gary, indiana, and things were bad ten years ago, 20 years ago. joe, tell us where you think we are. >> i don't think we should sacrifice the american worker. there are a number of ways to job train and escort people into work that we're just not doing. what happens a lot is you hear jobs, jobs, jobs, and you don't see anything happen. i don't see any job programs. do you? >> oh, job training programs. that's about it. >> do you? >> that's been the problem. there's been this job training consensus. there was job training money under clinton and the recovery act, but if you train people to have jobs and there are no jobs -- >> there's an "all dressed up and nowhere to go" potential. you train people for jobs and there's nowhere to go. >> i was doing this for 20 years. >> basically what? >> the job sector, working with disabled people, homeless gentlemen, homeless adults, disabled, as i say, and i've never seen a lack of commitment to the work force like i do now. >> by who? >> by the government, by officials. just turning on public employees for example. >> and you were
